Do not understand why anyone would ever boost one of those cross-posted tweets that has the "RT" text and Twitter links in them.
To be fair I also do not understand why anyone would ever want those cross-posts to exist like that, either.
@Gargron I'd say it has to do with people finding it hard to fully migrate from Twitter, trying to find a way to be in both places at once.
@MirceaKitsune I have nothing against Twitter receiving cross-posts from us.
